Syn – Rehearsal Demo
Label: Self released
In 2019 we are witnessing that USBM does not offer that much like in the past, glorious days. Of course, the torch of darkness and evil is still carried by bands like Profanatica and Demoncy. After the split-up of bands like Averse Sefira, Vrolok and almighty Judas Iscariot whole underground USBM movement missing that flame, that sinister & creative energy that has been moving them for so long. But here, we have possibly an answer on all our prayers.
Stationed at New Jersey, band SYN definitely has brought us that USBM feeling that I personally didn’t hear for ages. They brought so sinister and rotten atmosphere with them, that it is a must to hear and feel it. Their music sounds like soundtrack of a excavation of a mass grave under the rainy night sky. So expect really dirty and unpolished sound of everything that has been missing in USBM for quite good period of time.
Word or two about the production on this material. If you missed it on the start of the review, this is “rehearsal” demo, so do not expect progressive metal production and crystal-clear sound on every instrument. Guys made perfect sound for underground black metal demo material. Drums that are going from mid-tempo toward slow and transcendental rhythms that will flow right into your mind. Guitar shredding some seriously good riffs, and the best of all, they are catchy and with ease can grow up to you. Vocals are throwing on you some growl passages and going toward clean haunting-like sounds. Perfect unity of madness, concentrated chaos in one promising band
This kind of releases is now obscure even in underground scene. So hurry up and order your copy. Cult American label Regimental Records took the role of distributor for this material. SYN’s the best is yet to come. Expect only merciless crushing music!
